We’re heading to the Swiss Open at ATP Gstaad for today’s best bet as Mikael Ymer and Alex Molcan square off in the opening round.
Molcan is favourite with the bookies, but we’re confident the more experienced and accomplished Ymer can pull off the upset.
Molcan had never won a main draw match at tour-level before this season and has managed to achieve five such victories so far in 2021 – however, four of those came at the same tournament when he put together a great run to finish runner-up in Belgrade.
Outside of that event on the main tour, Molcan hasn’t made much of an impact – although making the second round of Hamburg last week as a qualifier was solid.
Meanwhile, Ymer has proven he belongs at this level over the last couple of seasons. The Swede reached the third rounds at both the Australian Open and French Opens this year, while he also made the second round at Wimbledon.
Ymer doesn’t have many weapons in his game, which will make it tough for him to consistently beat the very best players in the world, but he is extremely difficult to break down.
Not much can go wrong in Ymer’s compact style and he makes his opponent’s play very well in order to beat him.
Ymer defeated the likes of Roberto Carballes Baena and Gael Monfils at the French Open, so that should give him confidence on the clay.
Molcan has had better results on clay, but he’s still relatively inexperienced at this level at No. 160 in the world.
Ymer – ranked No. 94 – should be able to sink his teeth into this match and if he can remain consistent from the baseline and keep his unforced error count low, we’re confident the Swede can prevail.
- Molcan has only cleared the first round hurdle in ATP events twice in his career
- Ymer is ranked 66 places higher than Molcan
- Ymer has won six of his last 10 matches on clay
- Ymer made the third round at Roland Garros
